    Stop apologising for the 'poor picture' quality! It is superior to most of ours.... And on the web it looks great!

    Very nice Sir! Looks like it could be sat in the ADA gallery in Japan :)
    Can't see any "poor photo's" here mate. Think the pictures in my journal would burn your eyes out if you think your photography is bad. :lol:
    Looks like pretty low maintenance?
    Have you got just an island of Aqua Soil just at the back, behind and under the hardscape?

    Excelente Luis como sempre :)
    Looking forward to some more photos, tank looks awsome and the equipment there is no words for that, which I could just go out and buy a full ADA setup hehehe ;)
    How easy is it to get equipment and plants in the Azores???
